Day 8: Pet Peeves

My biggest pet peeve would have to be inconsiderate people on the road. Specifically when the traffic is at a standstill and someone decides they are special and go into the emergency lane and push in front. If you really had an emergency I would understand, but it’s always the BMW and 4×4 drivers that push in. I was once sitting in traffic and watched 70 cars push in front.

Another one which I’m not sure is a pet peeve or just contempt that I feel for these people is when people ride with their kids/babies not in car seats and not buckled up. Car seats are the ideal, but I do understand that some people can’t afford it. Then at least buckle them up. I’ve even seen people driving with babies on their laps.

An honourable mention must also go to people that talk to themselves. No problem if you do that at your own home, but don’t talk to yourself in the office. I don’t have great hearing (years of damage from loud clubs, live music and walkmans/ipods), so I never know if you’ve been talking to me.

Now I seem to be on a roll – vague Facebook statuses or tweets. Just a random example “I am so stressed for tomorrow” and if you ask what happens tomorrow they reply “I can’t say”. If you can’t say, don’t put the status up in the first place. Just learned it has a name. It’s called Vaguebooking

Telemarketing calls – if that is your job I feel very sorry for you.

People who think they are considerate smokers, but they really aren’t.

Text speak – I don’t mind LOL or ROTFL, but don’t send me a message that takes me 10 minutes to decipher.

When you send an email with a few questions, and you receive a reply answering the first question, but ignoring the rest

Think I better stop now, but it was good getting that off my chest
